Description Mike McLean 2003-03-31 15:30:51 UTC
* firstboot-1.0.5-11

When firstboot launches an X server, it specifies vt7 explicitly (line 152).  If
for some reason an X server is already running on vt7 this can do very strange
things to the box, possibly locking it up.  See bug#86576 for more details.

If you don't specify a VT number then X will take the first available and thus
play nice with any existing X servers.

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-05-22 20:50:10 UTC
Should be fixed in firstboot-1.0.9-1 in Rawhide.
